A scientific break

“Part III” of my series on depression has been rolling around in my head since I was writing Part II. But I’ve struggled to find a long enough block of time to sit and actually write it.

It’s coming, but in the meantime I am excited to share an article that nicely presents not just the theory behind the physiology of depression and other mood disorders, but also two of the three most critical therapeutic measures to manage it: exercise and mindfulness. This isn’t exactly a light read, but I found it to be high-quality scientific writing despite covering a rather broad spectrum of topics.

Part III is a continuation of my personal story as I was gradually introduced to skills and practices that help me put depression into remission and manage flares. I look forward to sharing it, and thank you for your patience in the meantime.
